The illustrated results for the Climate Model Berlin were calculated using the regional climate model FITNAH (Flow Over Irregular Terrain With Natural And Anthropogenic Heat Sources). The fundamental goal of the investigation was to make a prognosis of the changes of the climatic circumstances in Berlin’s urban structures and editing the results for planning issues in these both evaluation maps.

The FITNAH model calculates meteorological parameters on a three-dimensional reticule. The present evaluation maps were executed at a grid resolution of 200 x 200 m and displayed in an own cartography 04.10.

The Cimate Functions Map establishes the actual state of the climatic situation as relevant to planning. Emphasis is put on bio-climatic load cases, compensation effects of cold air producing areas as well as spatial correlation between compensation and affected spaces. As the compensation efforts are as classifiable as the impact, planning priorities can be established to clarify when settlement areas are affected by changes in the compensation areas.

The defined climatic functional areas should offer assertions on which areas
